Just announced by runDisney, is Club runDisney! Club runDisney is exactly what it sounds like, a limited exclusive club. Here are the details, how much Club runDisney costs, when it goes on sale, and is Club runDisney worth it?
According to the Disney Parks Blog:
“runDisney is excited to introduce Club runDisney, a new, unique membership opportunity for runners. Club runDisney will offer three different one-year-long membership levels – Silver, Gold, and Platinum – featuring a range of special benefits that will run from October 1, 2020 to September 30, 2021.
All Club runDisney members will receive a welcome package including an exclusive jacket, and will have access to the lowest race registration pricing all year, a new Virtual 10K in Fall 2020 that is exclusively for Club runDisney members, and special Club runDisney designation on race bibs during on-site events. All of these benefits are included with a Silver Membership.
Gold Membership will include these perks, along with early registration access with a guaranteed spot in the half marathon or marathon distance each race weekend.
Platinum Membership will have all of these benefits, plus early registration with a guaranteed spot in one distance each race weekend; upgraded corral placement; and an exclusive Expo experience with early admittance to the runDisney Merchandise Shop, a special character meet and greet, and access to a Club runDisney Lounge with expedited race packet pick-up.
Club runDisney memberships will go on sale on Tuesday, February 18, 2020 at 10 am ET, just prior to the start of the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend. If you’re interested in learning more, check out https://www.rundisney.com/club-rundisney/ or visit the Club runDisney booth at the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend Health & Fitness Expo, which kicks off Wednesday at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.”
Club runDisney Prices:
What strikes me as the most interesting part is that the platinum level includes “upgraded corral placement“. I am curious to see what that looks like and how it works for the runners. That is a lot of money to pay for that added benefit. To be exact, it is $320 more than the gold level. Is Club runDisney worth it? It depends how much those extra perks are worth to you. I think if you are the person who pays $320 for the marathon weekend race retreat, this is probably something you would enjoy.
Again, Club runDisney doesn’t go on sale until February 18, 2020 and it runs from October 2020-September 2021.
I’ll update as I learn more about Club runDisney.
